Just another "cure all chemical for the black tank". The no. one cause for sticking is improper installation, overtightning attop of list. No. one cause of valve failure is forcing stem out, destroying plastic gate threads with steel stem, when stuck.
Remember tank can be pumper lower with a utility pump suction lowered from the top.

I'm also not that sure about these additives ??
they are OK
but
you pay a lot for what you truly get

poo itself is pretty slippery


once again
it is amazing what a little plumbers grease will do
I have gotten many an old valve over the years
some as old as 40 years
working good yet again
once taken apart and applying valve grease
then working up and down a few times
then some more grease applied
work it some more
put back together
nice
